Here are some options that will flourish in Georgia:
King Sago – Plant the King Sago in zones 8 to 10 for its unique shape and texture and glossy metallic leaves. Despite its name, this is not a palm at all. It’s a cycad plant, one of the oldest plants in the world that dates to prehistoric times. Originating in Japan’s southernmost islands, it adapts to temperatures from 15 to 110°F, and full sun or partial shade. It looks great in the shrub border or as an accent on a large lawn or near a patio.
Mule Palm – If you are looking for a specimen palm that no one else will have, the Mule Palm is a great choice. It’s one of the hardiest feather palms and is a man-made hybrid between the Pindo and the Queen palms. At maturity, it has a dark brown trunk with a massive caliper. Its pinnate fronds are long with wide, dark green leaflets that resemble the fronds of a coconut palm. But the fact that it is cold hardy down to 15°F really grabs customers’ attention.
Windmill Palm – This palm’s fronds are divided into about 30 leaf segments ranging from yellow-green to dark green, and they grow upward, vibrating in the wind as if they are spinning… like a windmill. Windmills are among the most cold-hardy palms, tolerating temperatures as low as 5°F, and thriving in zones 7b to 10b. Although they can reach 40 feet, most top out at 25 feet. They like a sunny, moist and well drained area, and are stunning when planted in multiples.
